NCCAOM Continuing Education for Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs in Hangzhou, China


The Integrative Healing Society ( will be offering its fourth annual China tour to Hangzhou, China this October. The event is open to professionals and students of Chinese medicine, and participants are eligible to receive 30 continuing education credits from the NCCAOM for attending.

The two-week course will be offered in conjunction with Zhejiang Chinese Medical University and their affiliated hospitals. The training will include 30 hours of clinical observation under the tutelage of senior level doctors. Participants may choose to study acupuncture, internal medicine, or Chinese herbs for gynecological conditions.

In the acupuncture departments in China, neurological conditions such as strokes, Bells palsy, and spinal pain are part of the everyday cases that doctors successfully treat. In China it is not uncommon for doctors to see over 30 people in a three-hour shift, and this gives participants in the event the chance to witness treatment styles they would never otherwise get a chance to see.

In the Chinese herb departments students also get to see high patient loads, as well as refine their pulse taking skills. Working next to doctors with twenty plus years of experience in writing herbal formulas, offers the opportunity for participants to increase their knowledge of how to successfully use Chinese herbs in their own practices.

In addition to clinical rounds participants will also receive 20 hours of lectures on a number of diverse topics in Chinese medicine. Notably, James Spears, the director of the Integrative Healing Society, will be lecturing on the contents of his recently released book and online course: Meridian Circuit Systems: A Channel Based Approach to Pattern Identification. Since its release in January of 2011, the book has received international attention and distribution, and this is the first time the course will be taught in China.

As part of the lecture series a number of Chinese professors and doctors will also be giving talks on topics such as TCM for gynecology, diabetes, liver disease, gastric pain, and heart disease.
